When you’re thinking about smart objects in your home, you probably haven’t thought about temperature sensors. Guardian Protection Services offers a variety of sensors to help you keep tabs on what’s going on in your house whether you are home or away from your internet-connected smartphone.
If you have a security system, you likely have some combination of door/window sensors, glass break sensors and motion detectors. While combinations vary depending on your home’s layout and your personal lifestyle/needs, these are three of the main pieces of technology that help monitor your home for intrusion. Other sensors help make your home “smarter” and more “intuitive” by detecting other factors you care about.
Low temperature sensors are an underutilized tool that can make a huge difference, especially as temperatures start to drop from autumn into winter. Why do you need to know if a location’s temperature has dropped dramatically? One of the major benefits is to protect pipes from freezing. Repairs and cleanup from can be costly and devastating for your property. A low temperature sensor gives you early warning to help prevent this sort of damage.
So how does it work? It’s pretty simple. The sensor detects that the temperature has dropped below 45°F and sounds an alert. In addition you can set up your account to email or text you a notification so you are immediately aware of the issue even if you are far from home. No one wants to come home to flood damage from damaged pipes. If your home has a smart thermostat, you can adjust the temperature of your home in reaction to a low temperature sensor alert all from your internet-connected smart device.
This feature is particularly helpful if you are away from your home for long periods of time in winter months. If you have a second or vacation home, this can also be a great option.
What else can you do with sensors? Heat detectors can monitor for high ambient heat in areas where a smoke detector is not ideal and using these sensors can help to create a layered heat and smoke detection system. Smart sensors can be used to fit a variety of needs. Smart sensors work on anything with a door, such as a gun safe, liquor or medicine cabinet. Know when these sensitive areas are opened when you have not authorized it. These small sensors allow you the flexibility you need to personalize your system.
